again... tonight an air canada flight is the focus of an f-a right now at 11:00, a potential crisis averted again. tonight an air canada flight is the focus of an faa investigation after the flight crew ignored orders to abort a landing at sfo. good evening thanks for joining us i'm jessica aguirre. >> i'm raj mathai. >> same airport, same airline. we learned of a communication break down moments before the air canada flight landed last night.
a lot of questions. >> tom jen sen is live. what have you learned? >> reporter: the air traffic controllers had to use a spotlight to shine on that aircraft to message not on the land because they said that the pilot and co-pilot failed to respond to their commands several times not to land that aircraft because they feared there could be another airliner on the runway they were about to land. this happened after 9:00 last night. you may remember back in july another air canada aircraft nearly hit four other airliners on a traffic way, that aircraft came within 59 feet of the ground according to a preliminary far preliminary faa investigator
report. that incident is still under investigation by the way. now nbc aviation expert mike mccarron told me tonight that both of these incidents are extremely rare and potentially dangerous and deadly situations. he says these are a few of the steps the faa will likely conduct as this investigation now gets under way. they will go back and listen to all of the air traffic control tapes and all of those cockpit recordings. the recordings were lost in the last incident. they will also examine the communication of the equipment on that aircraft. they should have two communication systems and backup frequencies that were in use. so highly unusual for them not to hear commands which they did say they couldn't hear the commands when they landed. they will interview the pilots and the air traffic controllers that were involved in the incident. and mr. mccarron said this could
lead to fines, suspensions or the loss of licenses. back live now. mr. mccarron also told me using that red spotlight like that, which is basically a universal sign to pilots to stop and not land an air kaft. he said it is so unusual he can count the number of times he's heard of this happening on one hand and he's been doing it for 35 years. we're live at sfo. it's not what you'd expect in october, warmer than average temperatures have firefighters on alert. a live look over san jose. one of the spots that could see record setting heats tomorrow. jeff ranieri has been tracking those temperatures and joins us now. >> we're not going to start off with too many issues. we'll get respite in the morning hours. 58 in napa at 6:00 a.m.

accidental weapon discharge. the prosecution contends he fired deliberately. >> he's like not interested in admitting he was there, but eventually he does and talks and tells them what happened. and what happened is an accident. >> today is about the stienle family. and the resolve they've shown throughout the entire process. we're going to do everything we can to give them justice. a suspected hate crime in one of the most liberal cities in the bay area. it happened at the pacific center for human growth in berkeley. the lgbtq community said someone set their flag on fire. someone walking by was able to get a picture of the suspect. police ended up arresting a transient charging him with
arson, committing a hate crime and battery. south bay families allowed back in their homes tonight. the bear fire is now 85% con feigned the last evacuations were listed today. nearly 400 acres were burned and four homes destroyed. the cause of the fire is still under investigation. >> let's bring in meteorologist jeff ranieri. now we have concerns that these temperatures could pose a risk as well. >> we have winds picking up for tomorrow, not the scenario firefighters want especially after all our north bay fires. we're starting off tonight that increased fire threat. i think it's going to stay with us here as we head throughout the next two days. it's not an extremely gusty event for a lot of the bay area but we will see occasional wind gusts 5 to 20 miles per hour. could be a little bit higher than that for some of the elevations above 1,000 feet.
but that's going to whip up the fire danger and north bay will have the number one fire risk with us. now all of this heat that's moving in, it's all because of a very strong area of high pressure. this is what we would see in august, but here it is october and we're dealing with this summer-like heat. the main gist of what's happening here is the rainfall, the cold air, every single bit of it is heading well up into canada. now, the only good news about some of the hooed heat that's moving in, is the morning hours we should see a respite. so tomorrow morning's forecast starts out in the 60s. for the north bay we start with 57 and comfortable in san francisco at 60. throughout the day it's fast warming, down to the south bay temperatures warming up two to 5
degrees. 91 in east san jose and 93 in morgan hill. keep your eye on the humidity. the lower than number, the closer it is to zero, the faster a fire can get sparked and spread. so please be careful, no outdoor burning or barbecuing of any kind. the warm temperatures by the bay, 87 in oakland, that dry easterly wind shuts off any bay breeze and ocean breeze. that's also why in my forecast in the beaches i put half moon bay at 81 degrees. 90 here in redwood city. san francisco record setting territory, the mission at 89 degrees. remember to drink water. we're not used to this warm. and napa expecting a warm 94 degrees. in terms of record setting heat, we'll get close. i think we'll have a new record in santa rosa at 93.
likely tie a record in liver more and san jose. a will the of these records dating back to the 1950s and '60s. by friday down to a cooler 69 degrees. that is going to be welcomed relief for us here across the bay. and the inland valleys down to the 80s by thursday and sunday we are at 79 degrees. we have to get through the next two days then we're good to go. the growing cancer threat faced by firefighters. competition is fierce. what we've learned about the cities vying to host amazon's new headquarters. we're back with new shows this week. clooif owns is my guest this week. do not change the channel. happening now, nearly 50 horses from the fairgrounds are returning home this evening. they were brought there shortly after the fire started and left late this afternoon.
